50mm & 50-200mm question
Sep 18, 2010

I have the 50mm (on the E-510) and have found, like many others, that its detail is incredible. It hit me when I went to photography horses. It brought out the hairs on the coat, something the the 70-300mm and even the 14-54 MKII couldn't do. I've used it for bug macros and found the same level of detail, magnified of course, and mostly with the EC 1.4 attached. I realise it's a prime , so more is expected. Those of you who have the 50-200, have you found feather detail in birds, or similar detail in horses' coats, etc.? How would you compare the 50-200mm with the 50mm, in terms of that sort of detail?
Thanks,
Ron
